  • It usually is visible within the first few min. of taking it. I would retake it! Good Luck!

  • No. It's an evap line. That's why there's a time limit. (Like read within 3 minutes.) Any line seen after that time limit is not a positive. She needs to retest with morning urine to make sure, but either she's testing too early and she is or she's not at all.

  • tests are only accurate if you read them with 3 minutes (i might be 4 or 5. it says on the instructions) after that they're useless.

  • have her go see a doctor and have a blood test done they can find out better that way. or take another one. has she had any symptoms?

  • When I took the pregnancy test and it came out positive, I immediately went online and looked up how often you get false positives (I was TTC and didn't want to get my hopes up and I really wasn't expecting a positive) and one of the things it said that could be a false positive was waiting too long to look at the results. That after so long a time, it will change to positive. At least some of the tests, so to me, it doesn't sound like she is. Still possible, though, since you can have false negatives.

  • After ten minutes the results are wrong! Have her buy a test that has two sticks in it and take it again!
